Postman’s Park

Postman’s Park contains a wonder. “The Material Prosperity Of A Nation Is Not An Abiding Possession: The Deeds of Its People Are”.  There are many plaques, each tell a story.

The park is opposite the entrance to London’s St Bartholomew’s Hospital on King Edward Street.  It is small but has many benches and is very pretty in summer (this is a dank day in February).   About Postman’s Park ⇒.
